Winter Wonderland

Hello Tutti Designs Fans!
Darlene here today filling in for team mate Nancy who is under the weather.  We wish her a speedy recovery and expect she'll be back next Monday with a new, fabulous creation to share.

 My card today was a quick and easy put together, but I LOVE the end result!
It's Christmas in July at the Tutti Designs Store and their July Release is jam packed full of awesome holiday dies!  You'll want to be sure to pop over and make your purchase early before they run out!  

The die I've used on today card is called Winter Scene (#352)

No automatic alt text available.

There are so many things I can think to do with this beautiful die but since I was short on time, I decided to use the technique I'm kind of 'hooked' on at the moment!  And, that is to die cut multiple time and glue together to create a 'chipboard' appearance and wonderful dimension.  

Here's how I did it ...

Step 1:  I found the background decorative paper I wanted to use ... in this case, a pretty, snowy paper and cut it an 1/8" smaller than my card front (my card is A6 in size).    The I cut a white card stock panel that fit side to side on my decorative paper but shorter leaving room for a sentiment or in my case ... snowy tree trio.

 Step 2:  Die cut my 'Winter Scene' from the white card stock panel but keep the 'negative' portion to reset my 'stacked' die cut back into.  From scraps of white card stock, I cut out 4 more Winter Scene panels.

Step 3:   Glue each of the 5 die cut panels, one atop the other.  Then glue your stacked winters scene back into the negative panel.  Blue sequins and a die cut tree trio were added as embellishments.    Viola!  This card is ready for mailing.


Please be sure to pop over to the Tutti Designs Store and check out all of the fabulous dies in this latest release.  And, of course, you'll want to browse through the store to see what other dies you need to have on hand.
